All of our invitations, save the dates, announcement sets and thank you cards come with free white envelopes. For extra-special occasions, we have the following options.
For orders of 10+ card sets, notecards, or invitations, we use 118gsm warm white, matte paper for our envelopes, which matches our warm-white card stock.
Envelope addressing is only currently available in our default font type and size. This is Baskerville BT Roman and will be printed to be easily legible, in black ink - making sure your cards arrive safely with your recipients. Currently, the font, text size and color cannot be adjusted.
We offer three helpful options for you! The first option is to download our handy spreadsheet template which is linked for you in the editor by clicking the ‘download our template’ button. You’ll want to be sure to keep the column headers that are filled in for you on the CSV file and not delete these. The second option is to enter addresses manually in the editor if you’d prefer, but as a note, if you have a long list of addresses, we recommend always using a spreadsheet for ease. The third and final option is to choose from an existing address list in your Papier account if you’ve ordered addressed envelopes from us previously.
We recommend using the following format for your envelopes:
Line 1: Full Name
Line 2: Street Address
Line 3: City, State, Zip
If you have an apartment or unit number, please insert this as 'Line 3' and end with 'Line 4.' If you’re mailing to an international address, we recommend also including the country on Line 4 or 5 depending on if there is also a unit number.
Please note that any cells in your spreadsheet or within the editor that are left blank will print as a blank line, so be sure to fill cells consecutively from left to right – blank cells must come at the end, not the middle of your spreadsheet if using our template.
For 7x5 envelopes, each line has a character length maximum of 65 characters, including spaces. For square envelopes, each line has a character maximum of 45 characters, including spaces. This can fluctuate slightly based on individual word length. If you go over the character maximum, part of the text will drop down to the following line.
In the US, square envelopes do tend to require extra postage due to their unusual shape.
Postage for envelopes is not included in your Papier charge.
